Kids-Niche Feature: Fireweed Second Grade


Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in our Kids Niche Programs! These feature lessons, activities, and saunters from a different classroom each week.

Today’s Feature: Fireweed Creates Spellbooks

Last month, Clark Fork School transformed into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for the students in the Fireweed group. After receiving wands (of our own creation), we were in need of a spell book! We worked on binding our books, decorating the covers and finding the perfect spells to write in them. We then spent a few days thinking of unique spells and the corresponding wand movements to complete our spellbooks. In those days, our room was filled with voices of students sounding out spells and finding a way to translate that sound into writing. The outcome was truly magically!

Learning Objectives:

  • Connect books to experiences

  • Use illustrations to tell stories

  • Build strength in sight word vocabulary

  • Identify upper and lower case letters, their sounds and names

  • Recognize words in context
